Lying 24kms north of the Tropic of Capricorn the town was established for mine workers by Hamersley Iron in 1970, and came into operation in 1973. The iron ore is shipped to Dampier by rail.

 

It was named after a nearby station which was built by the McGuire family. The name comes from two Aboriginal words (piru and pardu) meaning meat and feather which applied to the large number of cockatoos which inhabit the area.
